Özet

We describe a newly diagnosed Turkish adolescent female with Dyskeratosis congenita along with the novel ocular finding of corneal limbal insufficiency. Corneal limbal insufficiency was suggested to be a premature aging sign resulting from a deficiency in corneal stein cell activity, a biological process caused by underlying telomeric defect in this disease.
